executive chef & owner
Chef David Everett has spent more than thirty years developing an intense appreciation of the purity of flavor and the commitment to quality that comes from the artisanal farmer. Whether it is hand crafted cheeses, organically raised livestock or lovingly tended produce, these products provide the inspiration for his menus and keep him intent on delivering the very best flavors possible to the table. After more than a decade of Five Diamond reviews, David made a dramatic move to get back to the flavors that lie behind all great food. His European styled brasserie – Blue Talon Bistro – has emerged as one of the leading eateries in the area. The opportunity to bring his vision of Modern American Dining to The Trellis is one of the most exciting culinary developments in the region in years.
Susan is a native of Williamsburg and has been in the hospitality business 30 years, getting her start at The Trellis in 1989. After raising her children and spending 10 years at Kingsmill Resort she has returned once again to her roots, The Trellis Bar & Grill. In her spare time she enjoys the Outer Banks and hanging out with her new grandson!
Originally from Saigon, Vietnam, Ann has been at the Trellis for 15 years. Outside the restaurant she enjoys hiking and kayaking and has "been lucky to do many interesting things, from riding camels on the beaches of Pakistan, to living in a zoo in Arizona next to lions and tigers."
Born in Connecticut and raised in Virginia. Mary came to The Trellis after working in kitchens for over 15 years. She can be found either in a kitchen, hanging out with her dog or hiking (with her dog).
